Moved to OL-Guard. Now wearing #68.
Probably better suited
I always thought he would be a beast at DT! I dont know if I like this move!
I agree Don't like this at all.
He probably isn't very good at DT....the coaches see him everyday so I trust them
It was rumored before he signed here that he was better suited for the DL... IMO If the kid couldn't sniff PT at DL with the lack of depth there then he needed to do something else.
Golden is better then Jimbo... I feared it was true. He is going to hoist a crystal ball there - fsufsu
FWIW I hated when they moved Lewis over to OL... but he did pretty well there last season.
As was noted in another thread about this topic, I just went to the U of M's athletic website, clicked on Football and then on Roster...Jacoby is indeed listed as an OG with # 68
The U and The Strip - life doesn't get much better than this! P.S. - I will always stand with The _
It's All About The U
The kid was only a freshman! Most DT's take 2-3 years to develop. I just feel this was a lil quick.
Just saw that .. Not saying much for the kid when they move you like that.. If he was killing it or showing signs of being a player on the DL they wouldn't of moved him..
Got to bring in atleast 2-3 DL this year..
Some kids just aren't meant for Defense... It's a mentality more than anything else. It does seem a little early but if that's the case then it's probably pretty obvious. Have to trust AG.
could it be a recruiting move so that it doesnt look like we have s many young dt's?
ALL ABOUT THE U
but OL? if he wasn't good at DT then i dont know how he ever plays. OL loaded,.
Carter and sometimes Bill Baskin
An ideal rotation is 10 guys.. I definitely think he can contribute some before he leaves.
Its not like he was recruited site, unseen. We knew he was a project, but showed great talent. Its just very hard for me to see this kid, not at the very least, be a run stopper by his Jr year. I mean thats 2 years from now! I just dont want this to end up being another Dye situation. Lets not waste two years, to then turn around and put him back in his Sr year. Whatever happen to development? Do we give up on kids in 1 year?
there was talk about his work ethic well before he was recruited. supposedly why he wasnt a 5 star
If coach says so, then yes. That's why he's the coach.
This is also why coaches get fired! Either the evauation was wrong or the development was poor. We'll see how it plays out, but I just don't subscribe to ANYTHING just because somebody said so!
That's who went through my head when I heard about this. I don't think Dye's year was wasted last year though.. I understand what you are saying but I think developing players is one of AG's biggest strengths. As of now, the staff can't want it for the kid... That's ultimately up to JB. Hopefully he contributes somewhere.
The Kid Never Played A Game....I Dont BlAme Travis Rudolph!
Seems like an eventual roster spot that will open up.
